I don't think Jerry or Bobby outdid Dylan at Dylan. That was only a few instances with Manfred Mann, The Byrds, and Hendrix.

I liked the Dylan covers plenty but not old enough to appreicate the Chuck Berry stuff.

cannot agree with you on that one spaced. Jerry did dylan much better than dylan - more emotion, more feel, more rythym - just my opinion though

I've always rather preferred the Jerry versions of BD's songs, but perhaps there's a bit of bias in my appreciation. However, it's no knock on Dylan. He did House of Rising Sun tons better than Eric Burdon hands down, and i'm a huge (HUGE) Burdon fan.

Dylan's studio versions are far better, esp those mid-60s things. He picked great musicians and subtly knows how to inflect his own writing. I think his songs were so strong is why GD covered Dylan so much.

Or maybe I gargled too much in the rat race choir.


See Dylan front the Dead was so strange, at least in Oakland because they played Truckin while he did Highway 61.
